Getting a Useful Crash Log in Mac

Obtaining a crash log on Mac OS X is incredibly easy since it automatically creates easily accessible crash logs for you.

* If Appplication has just crashed or you can easily reproduce the
crash, press the Report button on the CrashReporter dialog box to view
the crash information.

* If the crash report dialog does not appear or the crash is hard to
reproduce, you can get the crash log from the
YourAppplicationName.crash.log file located in
~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/. This file is a plain text file and can
be viewed in the default Console.app or your favorite text editor.

All crashes are logged to this file so please only attach the last
crash in it. Crashes are separated by a series of asterisks
(∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗∗) for easy identification.
